School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-This series prequel delves into Queen Levana's past, beginning with her parents' funeral when she was 15. Her vain and cruel sister Channery will now become queen, a position of power and responsibility. While Channery wants the former, she has no interest in the latter, and Levana knows that she would make a better queen. She also covets the love of Evret Hayle, a happily married royal guard with a baby on the way. After his wife's death, Levana uses her glamour to manipulate him physically and emotionally in an attempt to achieve her warped understanding of love. Once she has that, her thoughts shift to the other thing wants: the throne. Rebecca Soler meets the challenge of inhabiting Levana over the span of about 10 years, reflecting the changes in Levana's psyche with changes in her voice that alternate between light, calculating, and desperate. Without the action and wryness that characterizes the other titles in the series, this story is darker and moves at a slower pace. While it does give listeners insight into Levana's past and motivations, it will leave them even more anxious for the conclusion with the return of Cinder and company. VERDICT Recommended to fans of the series.-Amanda Raklovits, Champaign Public Library, IL © Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
